Have you even read Gutmann's paper?
Gutmann's paper is meant for wiping data from physical drives, not
software drives. The 35-pass number is also a misreading of Gutmann's
paper: you use the proper schedule for whatever your underlying hardware is.
I don't think you've thought this through. I think trusting a scheme
like this is very unwise. I think we're also far away from what's
on-topic for GnuPG-Users, so I'll just leave this thread at that.
